man you hit the nail on the head,and whats worse is all these columns although appear to be identical, there are many lengths and subtle differences within years/models.....im having issues with mine (81 cab/700r4) to work at all near linkage on trans and its between 89-91 standard pickup column....aaaaarrrghh !!What did you do for the shifter to have it work right with the extra positions? I have a 700-R4 in an 82 GMC and swapped in a tilt column that was supposed to be from a Suburban with a 700-R4. Hah. Probably was one that had been swapped in place of a TH350. I can get its notches to align with any one gear, neutral or park while nothing else aligns.
Sure would be nice if some company would get with it and make retrofit 4 speed kits for the 1980's 3 speed columns like they do for the 60's and 70's with the indicator on the column. There are no more 80's 4 speed columns to be had, they're always gone the instant a factory 700-R4 truck hits a junkyard.
